VEGAN: Lime and Avocado Cheesecake
A heavenly dessert that you should not take a pass on.
How delectable do you want your desert to be? If there is avocado in it, it is as good as heaven already for me. And that is why I am sharing this recipe with you that came across online.
If you want to move away from the typical cheesecake we are all used to and if you are vegan looking for a great alternative, this recipe is for you. This avocado recipe is to die for and very easy to make.
You won’t even have to worry about the calories here as the avocado alone is good fats so indulge yourself after preparing it. I am sure you will go back for seconds and even for a third. That is how good it is.
Check out the recipe below.
Lime And Avocado Cheesecake
Oil spray, for greasing
For the crust:
150g Oreo cookies, finely ground
3 tbsp coconut milk
For the filling:
150g cashew nuts, soaked in water for 2-4 hours, then drained
2 small avocados, peeled and stoned
1⁄2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp vanilla paste or 1 vanilla pod, split lengthways
100ml agave nectar
Juice of 2 lemons
100ml coconut oil
Juice of 5 limes, plus the pared zest of 1 for the top (optional)
Slices of kiwi fruit, for the top (optional)
In a mixing bowl, combine the ground Oreos and coconut milk. Press the mixture into the bottom of the cake tin. Chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
Put all the ingredients except the lime zest and kiwi fruit into a powerful blender. Process until smooth. Then take the cheesecake base from the fridge and ladle in the green filling.
Decorate with curls of pared lime zest, or with overlapping layers of kiwi fruit slices, or both. Chill in the fridge for 2 hours before serving.
